Very nice!

Perhaps you could try messing with the seperator lines between the menu
items on the left hand menu. Maybe toning down the white, or only having
lines under each main section. Nothing actually wrong with it, just lots of
white lines makes it look a little disjointed and hard to read. Also the
double '>>' on each item detracts from the readability of the text, trying
replacing it with a (don't really like them but) bullet point, or removing
them completely. The indentation alone should signal it's a submenu option.

Again just my thoughts, I like the picture in the monitor!
